Working inside Microsoft means you hear a lot of noise about new products. Sometimes it's like a background roar and you need to block it out so you can focus on your job.
To reach people like me (the "yeah, whatever" group), there's compulsory on-line training to work through. Sometimes it contains good content and the new user experience video is no exception. The Snaps demo made me smile and go "oooh, shiney things" - I'm sold on Windows 7 now.
